Don’t miss the last of several meetings where residents were invited to learn about proposed recommendations related to race and culture in Fort Worth:

Oct. 11 at the University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute, 7300 Jack Newell Blvd. South. The meeting will last from 6-8 p.m.

There will be a short presentation about the task force’s work so far. Each of seven committees will have a table so that residents can learn about the recommendations and ask questions. Committee members and city staff members will be stationed at each table.

Residents may also submit comments and questions via email until Oct. 12. The task force will be reviewing comments at their Oct. 15 meeting.

The subcommittees have been meeting to study racial equity and bias in several areas: criminal justice, economic development, education, health, housing, municipal governance and transportation. Committees have formulated 23 recommendations for possible presentation to the City Council later this year.

About the task force

In 2017, the City Council appointed a task force to advise on issues related to race and culture in Fort Worth. Co-chairs are Rosa Navejar (presiding co-chair), Lillie Biggins, Rabbi Andrew Bloom and Bob Ray Sanders.

The task force was asked to engage Fort Worth residents in a series of healthy conversations about race and culture, draw conclusions from these conversations and make recommendations to the City Council. The task force will also review findings of a study on disparities in how municipal services are provided, then advise councilmembers on a strategy to promote racial and cultural equity.
